My mind is constantly changing. My ideas for the future somersaulting with every turn of the Earth around the Sun. New opportunities are popping up every day – every one leading somewhere extremely different and yet all extremely exciting.
I have so many options for my path – so many different ways to get where I’m going – and it’s interesting to realize “there’s no wrong answer”. Whatever I choose will teach me something, will take me somewhere, and move me forward in this life. It’s just a matter of choosing.
And amidst all these choices – new things are happening every day.
Tonight I was invigorated by meeting someone who shares a lot of my ideas about life, who shares my yearnings for adventure, and who has lived a fascinating life. His life has nothing necessarily similar to my life besides the simple fact: he has chosen in his past to adventure, to seek new experiences, and he values everything he’s learned from his plethora of experiences. He has gathered stories and he hopes to seek more, he wants to see this country, to adventure, and to be physically active in these adventures.
These similar thoughts made for a wonderful night of conversation, of back and forth story-telling, of intrigue, and of learning how much I actually have learned about myself.
Meeting someone with similar ideals is such a magnificent experience. You feel immediately you’ve met someone you were supposed to meet, and someone you hope to meet again – no matter the circumstances.
For me, I sat there realizing slowly how much I know about what I want in life. I can finally pinpoint the things that are most important to me in terms of living my life and building relationships.
I want someone who wants adventure, who seeks activity, who likes people. I want someone willing to live minimally, who doesn’t need money, who wants to see the world, and who can hold an intellectual conversation with almost anyone.
That is how I will live this life – with adventure at the core of everything I do. And constantly reminding myself – wherever I go there will be people with this idea, I just have to take the time to look for them.
